Feels like a movie that never should have been made for a franchise that, having lain dormant for nine years, did not deserve a resurrection.
There’s nothing remotely adult to be found here, even for those deep in the grip of nostalgia.
Viewers are forgiven for expecting more than a couple of professional performances in a sea of unfunny, maladroitly crafted refuse.
The across-the-board awfulness of "Supergirl" disabused those who optimistically believed the Salkinds’ stewardship of the Superman series couldn’t slip lower.
There’s a depressing predictability to nearly all the action scenes that saps tension and encourages boredom.
Illustrates what happens when filmmakers take a moderately interesting premise and surround it with witless writing, cringe-inducing acting, stagnant action, humor-deprived comedy, and feckless drama.
This is first and foremost a Roger Corman exploitation special and, as such, it offers all the necessary ingredients: cheesy action, laughable gore, and plenty of T&A.
"Juvenile" is too sophisticated a word to describe this dumber-than-dumb, unfunnier-than-unfunny comedy.
The biggest shock of this new movie re-imagination is that it makes the cheesy TV series seem fresh and smart by comparison.
With its grim tone and sickening content, this gruesome gore-fest is an unwatchable piece of excrement.
